Description

Easy face climbing to a bolt about 15 feet off the deck quickly turns to a puzzling sequence to the next bolt. Don’t traverse too far to the right or left or you’ll miss the climb altogether. Once past the second bolt, scramble up to a third bolt and cross some questionable rock on your way to the anchors.

Location

Approximately 40 meters from the north end of the cliff band, a large roof caps a relatively blank face. Two bolts are easily visible from belay ledge under the roof.

Protection

3 bolts to an anchor underneath the roof. Helmets are recommended due to the rotten rock surrounding the anchors. Rappel off with a single rope.

I supplemented the bolts with a handful of small camming devices: a #1TCU up to a .75 BDC4 Apr 7, 2016

Straight up the bolt lines felt harder than 5.8. Friction moves with very sloppy holds or super small 1 or 2 finger edges will get you through.

Puzzling indeed. Even on toprope after leading it it was still difficult to read (5.8?). three feet left or right seems to be the answer... but... then I guess you miss the climb... Mar 23, 2009
an incredibly fun climb. Kinda short Jan 5, 2008
